The exhibit, which was organized by counselors of the Habonim Dror youth movement, recalls the life achievements of slain Israeli leader Yitzhak Rabin.
Anyone who happened to pass by the library at the Jewish Community Services Building in Center City on Nov. 13-14 was virtually transported to Rabin Square in Tel Aviv.
In memory of the anniversary of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin’s murder on Nov. 4, 1995 by a right-wing Jewish activist, three Habonim Dror youth movement counselors — all college-aged — set up an exhibit in honor of the late leader.
Visitors were invited to sit down and join guided tours of the exhibit, which was sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, and also included features about other world leaders of peace and equality.
“The exhibit, while teaching the audience some interesting details about Israel's history, gives the audience a safe place to ask us and itself questions about the reality that we live in,” said Hila Huber, the 23-year-old Israeli emissary in Philadelphia for the youth movement. “The Rabin exhibit describes Yitzhak Rabin's life as a timeline alongside the Israeli state and society timeline.”
